Saturday was bittersweet for me. My favorite dog, Taz, who has been waiting for a home for months, finally got adopted. I am so thrilled for him. He is a wonderful young pitbull that became the doggy ambassador for us at the CT Humane Society. If we wanted to see if another dog in the shelter was dog-friendly, we'd introduce them to Taz, because Taz loved every dog!
Taz would jump like a high-jumper in his kennel. Bounce and bounce and bounce and a lot of people dismissed him because of that.........but once you got him outside......he was a mellow fellow - just like above.
Taz is a great ambassador for the people who are afraid of pitbulls because of news reports, bad press or lack of knowledge and experience with them. Yes - there are those dogs (and some of them pitbulls) who have not been given proper training or have been treated badly, that do bad things - but there are A LOT of pitbulls that make wonderful FAMILY pets. I am so glad to have gotten to know a lot of these dogs personally and can try and help break the myth that these dogs are 'killers'.
So - here's to Taz and his new owner that you have a wonderful long life together!! I'll miss you and hope to see your smilin' pitty face again soon :)
And if you're still with me..............
Happy ANNIVERSARY to TANGO - my former special-needs foster dog - who has been in his WONDERFUL adoptive home for ONE year today!!
Thanks for stopping by today. I'm blessed to be able to share part of my life with these wonderful animals!
